As owner of the website. My inspiration for the Holistic World Dance page comes from my passion of Middle Eastern Dance and Music, art, the culture and most importantly, the people. Also is and always will be my first love. Belly Dancing was the start of my journey. But I have also fallen in love with the folklore dances and other traditional dances from every country in the whole Middle East. The artists that I have known throughout my journey, told me what certain dances mean to them spiritually, holistically and romantically etc. So I decided to research and add other cultures as well. Aside from Middle Eastern dance. And everything about dance. There is holistic dance from Peru, Brazilian Dance, African Dance, Japanese Dance, Korean Dance, Flamenco, Vienna Austria, Skate Dancing. Holistic and healing dance as well as Latin American - Ballroom Dance. An audience comes to watch a dancer perform. And is taken back by the beautiful costumes and stage settings. It is nice to have an understanding of everything about the dance, also what the dancer is feeling. All dance is spiritual and passionate. A way of expressing one self in pray or a romantic gesture through motion. Each culture connects a little differently in a holistic way. Middle Eastern Dance's especially are very spiritual.
This holistic World Dance page give's awareness to people. And they may not know that certain activities are a form of dance. Health clubs have classes listed and members or outsiders may think of it as just a form of an aerobic class. Fitness clubs have added so many different cultures. Middle Eastern Dance. Holistic and healing dances. That is what going to a health club is all about. Leaving the club after a work out. Feeling more relaxed happier and letting go of stresses that develop, from a hectic schedule. They are happy to know that it is a dance class and more people get involved as a way of having fun, staying in shape and learning everything about dance and about a culture. Roller blading and roller skating is not just a sport. SkateGuru -Lezly has new comers confidently and comfortable dancing on skates in no time. The experienced skate dancers are unbelievable, amazing and hot to watch. Chi Motion is hardly done at health clubs at the present time. But is a form of meditation, moving to a low impact dance routine. Using different colored balls for healing the different body chakras. One could still do this at home, with some light Yoga movements. NIA - holistic dance. Also is a low impact dance routine. Very spiritual. Just letting go. Body is very loose. No inhibitions.
